I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family! They drove in from out of town for Abbie’s college graduation and wanted to celebrate with a desert session with alllll the cacti! Sign me up! Abbie is also a photographer, and I always find it extra special when another photographer books with me because I know the amount of trust it takes to hire someone for your own job! We met up at one of my favorite desert spots in the East Valley, and was blown away by how nice and down to earth Abbie & Marcus were! And not to mention, their beautiful kids Emilia, Levi, and Koa. I could tell these were photographer’s kids because they knew exactly what to do without much direction. Well, I’m not sure Koa knew what was going on but he was the smiliest baby! He has went through more struggles in his little life than most people ever will… his life is a pure miracle! I was honored to get to hear part of his story. Sweet Emilia had such a mothering spirit with both Levi & Koa, and it was so sweet to watch them all interact together. I absolutely loved my time with the Pesquera family!
